3 years baby!

Yesterday Ryan and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary. Wow I can't believe it! It blows my mind how fast time flies, and yet I can't remember life without Ryan. He's my best friend... he's my everything. He continues to amaze me every day and I'm more in love with him now than ever. Don't get me wrong our marriage has it's bad days just like everyone else's, but when it comes down to it he's the one I want next to me at the end of the day and the one I want to wake up to in the morning.

I love you babe. Here's to many more tomorrow's together.

You are my sunshine

Mother's Day 2010
Hope all you awesome women out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know I sure did.
Now that I am a mother I have a teeny tiny idea of what my mom went through raising all of us.
Being a mom means your time is no longer your own.
My mom is the perfect example of sacrifice and love.
She would do anything for us.
I only hope I can be the kind of mother to Chanley that you are to all of us.
Also thank you Dianna, for raising such a wonderful son.
I couldn't have asked for a better mother-in-law.
Ryan and Chanley--THANK YOU for making my first Mother's Day so special,
{I even got breakfast and dinner out of the deal!} I love you both so much!

~doesn't get any better than this~

Yes you heard right, a MATTRESS!! For some reason, we just never got around to buying one. (I know crazy right?) We've moved around a lot since we've been married (7 times to be exact) so it was just a hassle to move it around. (Plus, they're pretty darn pricey!) So what have we been sleeping on you may ask? A good ole' air mattress. We just put it on our bed frame. It worked alright for us, but it's been THREE YEARS! It was soooo time for a real one. Don't you think?

Chanley representing all of our joy.

{My Faith}

Today I'm feeling gratitude. Gratitude for my Savior, for my life, my family... Today we {hopefully} reached the end of a long, {crazy} difficult ordeal for our family. It hasn't been easy by any means but even so I know we can be made stronger through our trials.

Having a bad day? Watch this sweet, short video HERE
{You may have to scroll down a little but its a short video called "My New Life."}

Everytime I listen to this woman's story it inspires me to live my best life.
There really is so much to be grateful much.
